Here’s how I am spending my election day: staring at people’s Instagram photos of their “I Voted!” stickers, shoveling peanut butter into my mouth with a spoon, and obsessively checking Nate Silver‘s website. Don’t know who Nate Silver is? Wait – LOL, why would I even ask that – EVERYONE knows who Nate Silver is: baseball statistician-turned political poll guru-turned most popular guy on the internet (most of the time).
In the past month it’s been impossible to scroll through Twitter or one’s RSS feed without happening upon some sort of mention of Silver, whether it be positive (Keep Calm and Trust Nate Silver), negative or just really weird-mazing. And because the world can’t stop thinking about him, I’ve channeled all my election anxiety into finding five of the sexiest photos of the pollster for this here post. Because the world loves Nate Silver forever and always (until he’s wrong).
